Michelle Bruno


Michelle Bruno is one of the original founders at ThriveCuisine.com. The site was started as a way to show people how easy it is to eat vegan, but has since grown and expanded into several different areas including...

  • Kitchen gadgets
  • Garden
  • Crafts
  • Vegan Apparel
  • and much more...

We now have a team of over 5 people and cover a whole variety of topics. And under Joey's and Michelle's leadership, we still try to keep everything vegan-friendly yet practical in a non-vegan world!

What We Do

Make Vegan Food Unbelievably Awesome

We don’t believe that being vegan is a choice made solely for health. If you want to be a “junk food vegan”, we’re okay with that.

That being said, not all of the vegan foods we talk about are health promoting.

We also believe that cooking with plants is by far the most creative. While anyone can throw some cheese or bacon on something and make it taste pretty good, it doesn’t really say much about their culinary ability.

Meanwhile, many talented chefs, bloggers, and home cooks have been busy transforming seemingly bland plant ingredients into masterpieces.

We want to make every effort to showcase this talent and provide you with recipes of our own!

Be sure to check out our vegan shopping list - one of the most helpful resources on the site.

We're Cooking Nerds

We're cooking nerds and are eager to make you into one as well!

Our kitchen appliance reviews are created to help you make the best choices for your home and recommend you some awesome vegan recipes with your new device.

Unlike other websites, we actually get down and dirty in the kitchen and you can find us on YouTube testing things like blenders, tofu presses and other kitchen gear.

Here's an example of what we're talking about...
